CL: I have two beauty products that were a staple for me. When filming the Bachelorette, I learned quickly that days are long. I absolutely needed my makeup to stay in place so I could look my best on dates, and that boils down to my primer and setting spray.

Milk Makeup Hydro Grip Hydrating Makeup Primer

E!: Is there a beauty product that The Bachelorette glam team used during filming that has become a part of your regular routine when you get ready on your own?
CL: Lashify lashes. I am a girl who's not afraid to shy away from a natural glam pair of false lashes. The convenience and duration that this brand gives sold me while away filming, and I can't go back.

Olivia Holt also recommended Lashify to E! shoppers.

E!: What's your go-to sunscreen for an outdoor date? Why is this your favorite?
CL: My favorite sunscreen is Black Girl Sunscreen. As a Black woman, having a sunscreen that is specifically designed for my skin but also is considerate in the cast it leaves behind is important. Black girl sunscreen provides those basic necessities, it's light with the perfect amount of coverage!
